excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis in prince george, bc
The medical term for excessive sweating is hyperhidrosis. It refers to excessive sweating, usually of the underarms, feet, palms, forehead, face or a combination of areas that is severe enough to interfere with oneʼs daily activities. Although sweating normally occurs with exercise or increased body temperature, some people sweat profusely in localized body regions for no obvious reason.
Treatment options to date have included topical products, oral medications, low intensity electrical current, or surgical clipping of nerves that signal the sweat glands or surgical removal of the glands. Although the above options have their pros and cons, one of the most effective treatment options with the least side-effect profile involves using BOTOX®.
